The terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day

Hey, kids: If you found this page while looking for a children's book, you came to the wrong place. It has profanity in it, in response to an obscene law that was just approved by the U.S. Senate.

Oh, thanks in advance for paying off the $9 trillion deficit. And if someone wrongly calls you an "enemy combatant," I hear the southern border is easy to get through. You might also consider Canada, but maybe not. Especially if you were born in Syria.

Yesterday was a good-news and bad, bad, bad, bad, bad-news day. Read below the fold...

China Doesn't Care About the US


A tone you rarely hear here, or at least in most US based economics reporting. The money quote:

The bilateral trade volume amounted to 211 billion dollars last year, accounting for 15 percent of China's total foreign trade of 1.4 trillion dollars.

Just 15%. The way a lot of econ folks over here speak, you'd think the Chinese economy would wither and die without us buying their plastic junk. (Forgive me SN) Not so much, it seems. Read below the fold...

Armies on the "offensive" don't build moats

Let's play Republican jeopardy! OK, "offensive."

What is... Bush's behavior?

Ding ding ding! We have a winner!

No, no, not another "smell of sulfur" post. Get a load of Bush on the campaign trail. Now that the McCain Torture Bill has retroactively immunized Him from prosecution for war crimes, he's all emboldened 'n' shit: Read below the fold...

"Intensive Interrogation Techniques." Bush. League. Nation. Style.

This is hawt, now.

Why in the name of all that is holy, righteous and worth fighting for wasn't this ugly pro-torture bill stopped, defeated, destroyed? Read below the fold...

Good, Hillary. Now do this every day!

Not just 'til 2009, when there's at least an off chance that Constitutional government will be restored. But after, as we root out the Republican bitter-enders who will infest the government from top to bottom.

That said, Hillary gave a great, though late, speech against the McCain Torture Act.

Washington led his soldiers across the Delaware River and onto victory in the Battle of Trenton. There he captured nearly 1000 foreign mercenaries and he faced a crucial choice.
